Description: To the left, a large brown bear stands in a clearing in front of a cave formed by flat rocks fallen onto another boulder. Behind the cave rises a dark conifer forest. At the left edge stand two dead trees; a fallen tree across the foreground stands as a barrier between the bear and the viewer. To the right the picture changes from green to a bluish grey palette, where a rocky slope climbs above a small lkae. Beyond the lake a series of rocky ridges and higher mountains form an apron for snow-covered Mount Hood, which dramatically fills the center against a light blue sky with white clouds gathering from the left. (From a color photograph.)
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title. The composition is very similar to [View of Mount Hood, Oregon 1].
